Very smooth. A nice balance of malt, yeast and hop flavors.

I picked this up at my local grocery store (~600 miles from the Brewery)! I couldn't believe they had it. I almost passed out. Grabbed a bottle, rushed home to taste it and it is amazing. Great Belgian strong!

Bottled 04/01/14.

Color: Nice pale gold, think Duvel without the prodigious head.

Nose: Smells like the hop profile of a German pilsner. Floral, a bit soapy, tiny bit earthy, spicy (mostly clover) and banana.

Taste: Rather sweet initially. Light malt, floral hops again, similar to Duvel but not fermented to the same dryness. Cannot tell it's almost 8%, drinks more like 5-6%.

Finish: Grainy, bitter, floral. Nice carbonation.

Pretty much seems like Duvel mini- almost as good, but not quite. As much as I want to say Damnation is in the shadow, it is a good beer in its own right.

Really really enjoyed this beer.. Another great beer from Russian river, bought it at alpine liqour. Too bad I only bought one, will definitely get it again.
